Enjoy a full day of sightseeing at Iceland's most incredible locations and marvel over the northern lights on one tour. Anyone interested in enjoying an entire day out at the country's most famous sites should book this tour today.

The tour begins with pick-up from a meeting point near your hotel in Reykjavik. Your friendly guide will then drive you to the Golden Circle, which comprises Thingvellir National Park, the hot springs of Geysir, and the Gullfoss waterfall.

This route lets visitors get in touch with some of Iceland's most famous and exciting natural phenomena and "must-see" spots. 

The first stop is at the Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland's first parliament was founded in 930 AD. This UNESCO World Heritage Site boasts a unique landscape as you can see the edges of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, which are constantly in action.

From Thingvellir, the tour heads to the geothermal area around the Geysir hot spring in Haukadalur Valley. This site boasts the geyser of Strokkur, which will surprise you with its 98-foot (30-meter) eruptions. These occur every five to ten minutes, and you can marvel over hot springs and mud pits between Strokkur's moments of activity.

After Geysir, you'll continue to Gullfoss, 'the Golden Falls,' where you can experience the full power of this waterfall firsthand. Walk around the trail and enjoy it from several angles until you get the perfect photo.

After experiencing these most beautiful gems that Iceland offers, you'll head for a soak in the Secret Lagoon, known among the locals as Gamla Laugin, in the small village of Fludir.

This lagoon is located in a geothermal area and is the oldest swimming pool in Iceland. Relax from your busy day in its fresh, warm, sulfur-rich water. 

After this action-packed day exploring Iceland, your guide will drop you off in Reykjavik at your accommodation. You will have time to rest and prepare for the night excursion to see the northern lights. Don't forget to change into warm clothes as it might get a little chilly on your nighttime adventure.

You'll be picked up at 20:30 by an expert aurora guide, who will take the group far from the city lights. Your knowledgeable guide will tell you about this breathtaking natural phenomenon and can take your picture with the aurora borealis dancing above you.

Unfortunately, since the lights are a natural phenomenon, there's no guarantee that you'll see them. However, the guides monitor the aurora and weather forecasts closely to increase your chances, and you'll get to try this part of the tour again if they don't appear.

The tour will return to Reykjavík around midnight. You'll be dropped off at or very near your hotel.

This 12-hour guided minibus tour is exactly what you need if you'd like to experience some of Iceland's most famous and magical sights in a single day. Check availability now by choosing a date.
